Masterpieces of New Guinea Art in Brussels

Masterpieces of New Guinea Art from the Royal Museum of Central Africa will be on view from June 4–15 at the Ancienne Nonciature, the nineteenth-century Papal residence in Brussels, which was recently restored to its former glory. This assemblage of exquisite Melanesian art has been launched to coincide seamlessly with the 2014 edition of BRUNEAF (Brussels Non-European Art Fair), which will take place from June 4–8 in the city's Sablon district.  A fully illustrated color catalogue accompanies the exhibition, with text by Crispin Howarth of the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Bart Suys of the Musée Royal d’Art et d’Histoire, Brussels; and Kevin Conru, author and researcher on Pacific Island culture.
